In this article the authors discuss some of the most important and significant steps that production control needs to follow when it comes to scheduling in cellular manufacturing. The authors point out that it’s important to have a clear understanding of the part number families in order to balance out the cell with the machines and man power needed to run the cell efficiency. They point out that running in a batch mode helps control the work in process and achieve a desirable flow through the cell. They go on to say that scheduling the cell is complex and it’s important that the cell layout is such that the cell can maintain the level of work in process.

In the article the authors point out how cellular manufacturing has become the way of the future and dates back to the 1930’s where it started in Europe. The authors go on to discuss the process on how a cellular manufacturing cell is set up based on part number families. The authors go on to discuss the studies that have been conducted on the layout and the production process. They also point
out that with the modern tech knowledge of the internet that many companies overseas and at home are using the resources available to gather information that is helpful in cellular manufacturing. K. Frasher , H. Harris , L. Luong ,...
